This game can be seen as Sega's Mario Kart and it is to a certain extent. However, It does seem to have it's own style in the choice of characters and power-ups like the All-Star. If you like Mario Kart, take this game for a ride (pun intended) too.

I have to say this game is pretty awesome for many reasons. It combines all the SEGA games together into one game where your favourite characters race against each other! A huge number of tracks from different worlds with cool environments. Also , This game has enough game modes to keep you playing for a long time! I'd recommend this game to people who have played games from the SEGA company back then to bring all your memories/favourite characters into one action racing game!

On console, this is pretty high up there with some of the best kart racers ever made. On PC, it's a different story: despite meeting (and exceeding) the game's recommended system requirements, no matter what visual quality the game is set at, I get horrible stuttering during races. Talking with friends who also own the game, they have the same problem.

It can be almost impossible to run a race when in the middle of a lap the game halts for a full second for no discernable reason. I get locked 60fps otherwise, it just suffers from unplayable stuttering. Several users on the Steam forums have posted ways to help fix the stuttering problem, but I've tried everything and it's still there.

If I had to guess, it appears the game streams a lot of its textures and graphical effects dynamically during a race. The first time anything appears on screen, it must be loaded in to memory. The stuttering is often worse in the first lap of a race and then gradually becomes less and less frequent as you reach the end.

Instead of this game, get "Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed." It's a better game in almost every way, and the quality of the PC port is significantly improved over this one.

Here I come!
Rougher than Knuckles!
The best of them!
Tougher than Knuckles!
You can call me Knuckles!
Unlike Knuckles, I don't chuckle!
I'd rather flex my knuckles!
I'm hard as Knuckles! It ain't hard to chuckle!
I break them whether they're Knuckles or Knuckle.
Unlike Knuckles, I'm independent since the first chuckle!
First Knuckles, feel the Knuckles, then the Knuckle chuckle!
